Fall of wickets: 1-8 (James Hopes, 1.3 ov), 2-11 (Kumar Sangakkara, 2.2 ov), 3-28 (Yuvraj Singh, 4.4 ov), 4-34 (Shaun Marsh, 5.5 ov), 5-40 (Irfan Pathan, 8.2 ov), 6-45 (Mahela Jayawardene, 9.5 ov), 7-63 (Piyush Chawla, 13.4 ov), 8-98 (Wilkin Mota, 18.6 ov)
13.4 to PP Chawla, you little beauty! tossed up the straighter one, Chawla tries to swing it away to the leg side but is completely foxed by the flight, it's fullish and beats the wild swing, the stumps are disturbed and Murali has the 1000 Watt smile to celebrate. 63/7
1.3 to JR Hopes, that's gone, Ntini strikes with a wide one, Hopes slashes hard at a wide one but that's moving away from the right-hander, thick top-edge goes at an easy height to Parthiv, they're cock-a-hoop, Ntini would admit that was a poor ball but it's produced a wicket. Chennai won't complain.. 8/1
5.5 to SE Marsh, bowled 'im, he's gone for the pull, has been beaten by pace again and played onto his stumps, that's a huge wicket, Ntini goes into an aeroplane celebration, Marsh had just got a four and he's tried to pull here, he hasn't been comfortable with pulling through this innings, pays the price here, Chennai well and truly bossing this game now. 34/4
2.2 to KC Sangakkara, that's another big one! Sangakkara has walked there. Angling away from the left-hander and only a half-hearted appeal from Gony, nothing from Parthiv behind the stumps but the batsman walks. Is this his Gilchrist moment? Semi-final of a big tournament, he's edged to the keeper and walked. What a start for the Super Kings.. 11/2
4.4 to Yuvraj Singh, Yuvraj is gone now, what a catch from Murali, slightly short and he's rocked back to pull it ferociously, that was bulleting through midwicket but Murali has intercepted that brilliantly, Gony is ecstatic and Murali is prancing around, this is surely trouble for Punjab.. 28/3
9.5 to DPMD Jayawardene, he's dangled the carrot and Mahela is lured straight into the trap, not too short, a bit of width, Mahela tries to be too cute by steering that to third man but a meaty edge goes at a comfortable height to Parthiv, the wheels are coming off here, Chennai on a roll. 45/6
18.6 to WA Mota, Oh you cracker! Suresh Raina has pulled off a peach of a catch at long-off, lofted straight, that was high on the bat and ballooned up towards no-man's land but Raina is quick, sprints towards it, puts in the dive and plucks out a low chance, they're not letting up here. 98/8

2.2 to S Vidyut, strike one! Pathan has drawn first blood, short and he's in no position to play the pull, feet rooted to the crease and trying to swat through midwicket, top-edge flies high and it taken by Mota at square leg, Yuvraj is pumped up and Irfan too.. 14/1
